Word Art Wednesday Challenge #195

           Good morning all! I hope this post finds you all doing well! I have been quite busy this week but so blessed that what is keeping me busy is spending time with my siblings, nieces, and nephews. I haven't seen my sister in 16 years nor met her children so all the craziness has been so worth it. Found myself as red as a lobster though today thanks to the Florida sun. The sunblock we just had bought ended up being expired and unfortunately I ended up with sun-poisoning. Not good! You would assume a well known store would not be selling outdated products that are over 3 years old. I will definitely be checking expiration dates the next time I buy sunblock. Anyway, let's move on to the creation am sharing with you today ;)
          This is Word Art Wednesday Challenge #195. If you would like to join us click here to be taken to the Word Art Wednesday blog and find out all the details. I decided for my card I would do some more coloring. I chose an adorable little fairy made by Some Odd Girl. I think she turned out so cute! I wanted to bling her out so I used some Wink of Stella and made her sparkle from her hair all the way to her dress and wings. The picture doesn't even begin to show how sparkly this cutie is. Hope you enjoy my creation this week! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I wish you all a very blessed and beautiful week!
